Details One of the most daunting, as these events are also showcasing tech innovation, is to ensure safety in cyber space. In recent years, the use of cyber-attacks to derail the organization of these events has been multiplying. Japan has taken a variety of measures to reinforce cybersecurity both for government agencies and companies, ahead of the Olympics that should take place in Summer 2021. This conference will therefore present and discuss the cyber threats on this event and the measures taken by Japan to ensure cybersecurity during the Olympics.

This conference will also touch upon the various diplomatic initiatives taken by the Japanese government to act as a leading nation in terms of cybersecurity and cyber governance on the international stage. Japan is a proactive actor in this area, both at multilateral and bilateral levels. Japan's cyber diplomacy in multilateral settings as well as vis à vis the EU, ASEAN, and the US will be presented and discussed.
